Today's links:

  • The hot link of the day is Michael Lee's profile of Jordan Crawford. In the piece, Crawford justifies his shaky shot selection by saying that "it's not a bad shot until you miss it," then admitting the problem while still saying that the team sometimes needs him to shoot bad shots. In addition, there's Mo Evans admitting that accepting criticism "can be a colossal challenge for [Crawford] at times." So ... yeah. [Washington Post]
  • In case you missed it, Roger Mason is having season-ending finger surgery and the Wizards have signed James Singleton for the season. [Us]
  • Mason tells Lee that he's had the injury for the past 18 games, but kept it quiet because he didn't want players to target it. [Wizards Insider]
  • Tank watchers: the Hornets beat the Grizzlies last night and are now four games ahead of the Wizards, meaning Washington has all but clinched the second-most ping-pong balls in the draft lottery. Basically, there's no point in cheering for losses anymore.
  • David Thorpe suggests that Jan Vesely emulate Gerald Wallace, because Wallace's relentless energy has made him a top-notch player. "Vesely is a better player than he's shown for much of this season, but early failure has robbed him of much-needed confidence. That has morphed him into a player who sometimes forgets that energy alone is a valuable talent." [ESPN]
  • Pretty general article on the state of the Wizards that seems to think they'll look at Andre Drummond in the draft. I doubt that, but we'll see. [HoopsWorld]
  • For those of you who want the Wizards to hire and up-and-coming assistant as their next coach, this piece about Warriors lead assistant Mike Malone is worth reading. [SF Gate]
  • Many seem to think Antawn Jamison is nearing the end of the line with Cleveland. [Akron Beach-Journal]
  • The Wizards are handing their Twitter account over to Shelvin Mack on Thursday. That's interesting. [@WashWizards]
  • Jeff Van Gundy's anti-flopping rant yesterday was great. [SBNation.com]
